this has the almost highest power limit among others
its cooling is enough to keep it cool under 70c at 1XXX rpm
with five years warranty which is remarkable on average
with separated vrm heatsink you can easily install aio with proper vrm cooling, not to mention there is no sticker on the screws of the back of the pcb
msrp is quiet high though, even higher than gigabyte xtreme and evga ftw
about the mosfets used in this card, quality and quantity both are not the tier 1 grade.
but it still fine for 150w power or even ~300w if bios tweaker is here.

Gotcha. Is the board of the Amp Extreme generally better binned than the Amp Edition? If I decide on replacing the stock cooler with an AIO anyway, would it be better to just go with the cheaper Amp Edition?

from what i have known, both share the same pcb, exactly the same if i remember them correctly.
the differences between them are bios settings(eg. power limit) and the stock cooler.
if you are going to install aio, sure amp is good enough and no need to buy the extreme one.
dont forget the attach heatsinks for vram, wish you get the samsung one, f**k my 1070 with micron only getting 2150mhz:mad:

Yeah, sure. So there's no way for me to know that I'd be getting the Samsung chips over the Micron and this is pure luck of draw?

Luck of the draw, unless you were to keep on returning until you come across a samsung chip.

If it is of any consolation my amp!extreme is micron but I can hit 21xx on core and 2302ish? (I'll edit in a gpuz screenshot in a bit) on memory.
EDIT: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
With +100 on core and +500 on memory

i guess it depends on the brands, msi and evga started using micron on their cards now, you should ask the zotac users
good luck

In a good or bad way? The Micron bios from my Strix OC right? You are saying different BIOS you different max memory OC?

Also can you write some quick steps to using nvflash?

I don't think Micron is the end of the world.
Unless I'm doing something wrong, my MSI can handle +800 so far on memory.
Playing around 850 is when it started glitching up.
Nothing fancy
